Lampard Breaks Hand While Celebrating Iwobi’s Winner Against Newcastle


Everton coach Frank Lampard said he broke his hand while celebrating Alex Iwobi’s late winner for his side against Newcastle United. 

The Nigerian netted a 99th-minute goal as the Toffees sealed a 1-0 victory to lift Everton three points off the Premier League drop zone.

“I’ve broken my hand in the celebrations. My bones must be going soft, I don’t remember the moment,” joked Lampard after the match on Thursday.

“It was an amazing night and we need those nights. Spirit and togetherness, the players stood up tonight. It was not a night for quality or calm. It means so much to the stadium we all felt that. I wanted to use the atmosphere.”

The former Chelsea manager, who praised his boys for the victory, said the win is a testament to what the team can achieve especially playing with a man down.
